Baby’s Firsts, illustrated by Michael Emberley/Charlesbridge, September 4, 2018
Endearing rhyming text highlights the developmental milestones babies encounter before their first birthday–crying, smiling, eating, teething,rolling, crawling, walking, and talking.
From the first, Day’s verse has the appeal and feel of an original nursery rhyme: “First cry. / First meal. / First burp. / Warm feel.” Emberley’s accompanying pencil-and-digital illustrations are gorgeously human in their depictions of parents caring for their babies….An excellent first book for baby—and parents, too.
